Hi,
   
    Can someone tell me where can I get Cognos SDK and documentation? I need to create report using Cognos for my java (websphere) application. I searched over the internet, but couldn't find the real useful answer.

   Thanks in advance.

To get the Cognos SDK (which comes with documentation) you have to buy a license for it.  This will give you access to the restricted download area on the Cognos support site.

Does cognos have different reporting packages? Our organization already has unlimited licence, but the cognos is running as web based service, and we can install Framework Manager on our local computer.

Can you tell me what package did you download?

Thanks.

The SDK is a seperate add-on to the reporting package.  If your company has a license for it, you'll see a option on the download page in the "Common Materials" section that says (for example)
Cognos 8 Software Development Kit 8.3 (Multiplatform) (294,088,758 bytes)

If it's not there, you'll need to talk to your account rep to get a license for it.
